Stars Unfurled - a double design wall

 As you know - I have been pattern testing the quilt called Stars Unfurled - designed by Katie Mae  and!! I have gotten to the stage where I get to put it up on the design wall!!


Actually - Its a double design wall!! I started out testing the Throw size of the quilt ( she offers 4 different sizes), but as I went a long - I became aware of s few Veterans that could use quilts of a different size... so I started playing with the blocks that I had made to see what I could come up with!

So here is design wall Number One: 


Ta da!!   I may end up adding borders to this one, after I get the center done I will remeasure and make sure it will work for this particular Veteran - if not.... I will add a Maroon Border

And now on to Design Wall Number 2!



This one will (obviously) be larger than Number 1 - but!! I really like this one - and It won't need borders for this Veteran! 

So when this pattern comes out - I will be sure to let you know, and you will want to make one! There are lots of other color ideas - its just I think in Patriotic... !! ( can you imagine!)

Oh!! And I do have blocks left - for a design Wall #3 

Stitch away!!!

You think in Patriotic and I think in miniature. SEW funny how different we all are, Alycia! I'll be looking forward to seeing how your test quilt turns out.

Nice design. I like how the alternate blocks adds a sense of motion. Nice to be able to layout the quilt in different ways. I hope #3 is shown sometime too!
